Summary: I have worn this model from 2007 until 2015 in some of the harshest environments and well abused. The face finally faded to make it difficult to read but the watch itself is still running. Best I ever had so I bought another just like it.
Summary: I bought one of these years ago and it is still going strong except cosmetically it was sad looking. To my suprise, they still make the same model. I bought my 1st one approx 6 - 7 years ago and have no issues what-so-ever with it. No batteries....EVER, no setting the time EVER and accurate as hell.
Summary: I love this watch! I never worry about keeping the correct time. I can not find anything negative to say about this watch and will buy another solar watch. The days of replacing batteries or setting the time is one less worry.
